Hawk Owl and Hen Harrier

Not much to report again during the last week I’m afraid.

We have a Hawk Owl around the house again

and on Sunday we had a female Hen Harrier in the garden.  It was one of the few times that I did not have a camera handy, and although it came right up to the house, by the time I had fetched my camera, it had gone.  This picture is from http://www.birdsofeurope.co.uk/HenHarr.htm

The temperatures during the day are up to 18 degrees, but at night it usually drops to below freezing.

  1. The birds seem to be all around you at your new place. I love the Hawk owl photo, not often do you see photos with the complete tail in them. Are these owls indigenous or an unusual visitor? Thanks for sharing.
